We are in the santuary singing praises to our God by the raising of our hands and the usages of our voices. We lift up holy hands and we give God the highest praise. Yet, once we leave the church you and your spouse haven't spoken in two weeks because he verbally attacked with profanity. Another Sunday approaches and the preacher's message is so stirring and teachable. But once the sermon is over no one can tell that you have been to church due to your lifestyle.
Worship is word that church goers use loosely and frequently. Well, I went to church and worship was wonderful. Is that true worship? "Those that worship must do so in spirit and in truth". Do we do that? Is worship a church experience of 2 hours or a life were Christ is the helm?
We should worship God daily in our lifestyle. Reading and meditating on his word daily, following his instructions, and clearly surrendering our will for his will. That's worship. So that when we come to church we are only doing what we do daily. Oh yes, we come to church but coming to worship requires effort on our part. It requires confession and restoration. It requires spending time alone with God. It requires us allowing GOd to talk to us. Are we really in worship or in a church service? Only you can answer that question.

I have spent the morning reading many of the submissions on "Worship". I think you will find many of your fellow writers have the true meaning of worship as a lifestyle in their hearts. You have raised the question. Isn't it wonderful the answer is "Yes" for many of us?
